Yuri Fialko, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at La Jolla, California, has indicated that the southern end of the San Andreas Fault near Los Angeles, which has been still for more than two centuries, is under immense strain and could produce a massive earthquake at any moment.

He said that given the average annual movement rates in other areas along the fault, there could be enough pent-up energy in the quiet southern end to trigger a jolt of up to 32 feet (10 meters).

To put this in perspective, the earthquake that destroyed San Francisco in 1906 was produced by a shift of up to 21 feet (6.5 meters) in the northern end of the fault.
